National Export Congress 2016

Advancing SMEs through Inclusive Business: from Local to Global

The theme of this year’s National Exporters’ Week and National Export Congress aims to promote a favorable business environment to enable SMEs to enhance their capabilities to supply and maintain their presence in the international market. Inclusive business encompasses the most remote and small enterprises to become the new sources of supply.

It is be a venue for showcasing government and private sector initiatives to grow exports and promote collaboration among businesses. It also recognizes Top Exporters with exemplary performance in their respective sectors as well as successful enrollees of the Regional Interactive Platform for Philippine Exporters (RIPPLES) Plus, a program that provides capacity-building trainings and business matching to expand the supply base of competitive Philippine export products. Networking Session with Foreign Trade Service Corps (FTSC), Export Marketing Bureau-Market Innovation Division (EMB-MID) and Halal Certifying Bodies will transpire to discuss international market trends and opportunities for SMES in exploring and expanding their market
